Brasseale, Eaton and Nash qualify for All-State Jazz Band

Richard Brasseale, James Eaton and Brenton Nash aced their auditions to earn a seat in the Alabama All-State Jazz Band.

These young men are members of the Bob Jones High School Band.

The all-state jazz musicians will rehearse and perform in conjunction with the 2013 Alabama Music Educators Conference at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel and Convention Center on Jan. 10-12.

Clinicians will be Dr. Andy Nevala, gold band, Jacksonville State University; Dr. Joe Ardovino, silver band, University of Montevallo; and Brian Bankston, Junior High All-State Band, Gadsden High School.

Eaton, a junior, plays drums in the Bob Jones Patriots Marching Band and the Indoor Drumline. In 2012, he earned the National Award of Excellence with National PTA Reflections, a program that identifies superior work in the fine arts. Eaton first won at Bob Jones and then the Madison district and state levels before advancing to the national competition.
